The Gift Of Sacred Sexuality

One day, a woman who was walking through a little wood lost her way.

As sunset approached, the woman felt anxious about finding a way out quickly before darkness could befall.

As she struggled to find a solution, she heard footsteps some distance away.

She was relieved. She thought she would soon be in the company of a human who would help her.

However, she was wrong.

A man appeared and she asked him for help.

When this man saw she was a lone helpless soul, a sudden darkness took over him.

Instead of assisting her, he began to make sexual advances at her.

This woman realised something was wrong. Not knowing what to do, she called to the Goddess Energy from the depths of her heart.

As her call bellowed through the woods, a gigantic hissing snake appeared from a bush nearby.

The snake appeared angry and ferocious.

The man, who was petrified of snakes, shivered in fright, while the woman believed the snake was an answer to her prayer. So, she turned the other way and ran for her life, when she heard a booming sound behind her.

She stopped in her tracks and when she turned around, she saw the snake burning up and a misty orange light appear.

The man continued to tremble, as an other-worldly couple, much like a God & Goddess, stepped out of the mist.

They looked calm yet had a firmness about them. They didn’t say a word to the man but began to beam a bright orange light from their third eyes. They directed the light to his sacral region.

The man screamed as this light penetrated his energy body and the woman looked stunned beyond words, as she wondered what in the world was going on. The man tried to escape but the light was simply too powerful in its grasp.

After a while, the light stopped flowing. The man dropped to his feet in exhaustion.

The Divine Couple then turned to the woman and asked her to come closer.

The woman walked up and stood beside them, facing the man.

The God said to the man, “Look at this woman. What do you feel now?”

The man said, “Respect, Reverence, Devotion, Tenderness, and Purity.”

And the Goddess said to the woman – “Look at this man. What do you feel now?”

She uttered, ”Safety in addition to Respect, Reverence, Devotion, Tenderness and Purity.”

The Goddess said- “Very good! Because in the new paradigm, that’s how women and men will feel in the presence of one another. And you both just got a glimpse of it.”

The God said to the man, “The Light cleared the sexual garbage in your sacral and empowered you to rise to a higher vibration – one where you could see a woman through totally different eyes. You will now go your way and pass on your learning to others in need. Teach them to purify and master their sexual energy for the greater good and to harness it NOT like a demon, but like a God in partnership with Goddess.”

The man, totally transformed in consciousness, bowed and said, “Yes, Divine Father.”

And the Goddess said to the woman – “And you shall teach women to respect and honour their bodies, to nurture their wombs, and to also learn to master their sexual energy, like a Goddess in partnership with God.”  

The woman also bowed and said –“Yes, Divine Mother.”

The woman and man parted ways.

Three years later, this woman was passing through the woods again, when she bumped into the same man.

Their eyes met and they stopped like lightning had struck them.

What they saw in each other now was a very different energy – as compared to what they previously were – unconscious man and fearful woman.

Now, both of them had clean and clear sacral chakras.

They had mastered their sexual energy and knew how to harness it at the frequencies of love, respect, devotion, tenderness, safety, and purity.

They knew they had a purpose to fulfill together.

They went on to become a couple and taught the art of ‘Sacred Sexuality’ to many in their village and beyond. These couples then went on to teach more couples.

As this teaching spread far and wide, sexual energy began to be viewed as natural, pure, powerful, sacred, and also as a form of love. As a result, the incidence of sexual violence in the population dropped and sexual perversions dissolved.

Safety, love, and freedom prevailed.

And Light illuminated the bodies, minds, and hearts of women and men.

Conscious Conception

Conception – A miraculous act of two forces coming together to create a third force.

Just think about it – how intelligent is this biological process that fuses the sperm and egg together and facilitates the creation of the zygote, which then goes on to become an embryo, a foetus, and finally a baby in the arms.

Very often, conception happens unconsciously, which means-

  1. There is no intention to conceive and the pregnancy turns out to be an accident.
  2. There is an intention to conceive but there isn’t complete alignment with the intention, which means – one or both partners aren’t ready to conceive but they decide to start a family anyway.

On the other hand, Conscious Conception is the act of preparing to conceive consciously, which means –

  1. There is a clear intention to conceive and the pregnancy is not a surprise.
  2. Both partners are in alignment with the intention and feel ready to invite a new soul into the womb and into their family.

If you fall into the latter category, keep going! The ‘Conscious Conception’ Meditation shared below may support you.

If you fall into the former category, don’t worry. You had your own journey and lessons to learn. Honour your experiences, no matter how less than ideal they may seem.  Also, the ‘Reframe Your Conception’ Meditation shared in this post can help you shift the energy around your conception experience if you so wish to.

Conscious Conception Meditation (for people trying to conceive)

When you embark on a journey of Conscious Conception, you choose to offer your womb consciously to a soul who is looking to incarnate on Earth.

You extend a conscious invitation to the Soul Realms and are prepared to accept a soul who chooses you and your partner as parents. You then let go and allow conception to happen in Divine timing.

Intimacy becomes meditative in nature as you see sexual intercourse as an means to create a body for the chosen soul.

You can choose to do this meditation once a week or so when you begin your Conscious Conception journey. You may do this alone or with your partner. Bear in mind that for you to benefit from this process, it isn’t mandatory for your partner to meditate. You doing it is sufficient. 

Meditation Process

  1. Light a candle/lamp
  2. Sit or lie down in a comfortable space.
  3. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths – in through your nose and out through your mouth.
  4. When you feel centered, place your palms on your heart chakra and tune into the frequency of love.
  5. Now place your palms on your womb and set an intention to transfer the love from your heart into your womb space.
  6. See your womb filling up with love and shining bright. See it as a warm inviting cocoon for a spirit baby to reside in.
  7. In this state of higher consciousness, extend an invitation to a Spirit Baby – “Dear Spirit Baby, I invite you to take residence in my womb when you feel ready. I am ready to support your intention to incarnate on Earth. I am willing to offer my womb to you so you can develop a strong and healthy body before you set foot into the physical world. I send you my love and look forward to meeting you.”
  8. Take a deep breath in and as you breathe out, let go.
  9. When the process feels complete, open your eyes gently and drink some water if you feel like.

Reframe Your Conception Experience

If you are already a parent to a child and wish to transform the conception of your baby into a ‘Conscious Conception’ experience, you can go back in time and reframe the experience through this meditation. The difference is that in this meditation, you skip the part that invites a soul into the womb and instead welcome the baby at the time you discovered you were pregnant.

  1. Light a candle/lamp
  2. Sit or lie down in a comfortable space.
  3. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths – in through your nose and out through your mouth.
  4. When you feel centered, place your palms on your heart chakra and tune into the frequency of love.
  5. Now place your palms on your womb and set an intention to transfer the love from your heart into your womb space.
  6. See your womb filling up with love and shining bright. See it as a warm inviting cocoon for a spirit baby to reside in.
  7. Now go back in time to the moment you discovered you were pregnant and say – “My Dearest Baby Angel, welcome to my womb. I am so happy to receive you. I intend to keep you warm and comfortable in my womb. You are safe here. I love you, little one.” Feel these words in your heart as you say them. That makes them even more powerful.
  8. Be with this process for as long as you wish to. Notice how it makes you feel. When it feels complete, take a deep breath in and as you breathe out, let go.
  9.  When you feel ready, open your eyes gently and drink some water if you feel like it.

Moon Time – The Significance Of Menstruation

Menstruation – The time of the month that almost every second woman in today’s world sees as a pain.

A time that makes you want to retreat and not do much – provided you are in tune with your body.

Women in many indigenous cultures are said to have been so in tune with their bodies that they had no trouble retreating into a quiet space during menstruation and returning to the world of activity when their bleeding stopped.

They also saw a correlation between the menstrual cycle and the cycles of the moon. The average menstrual cycle lasts 28 days which is a similar span of time as a moon cycle (27 to 29.5 days).

They also believed that the moon has an impact on women’s menstrual cycles, and that if a woman is in sync with the moon, the pivotal points in her cycle coincide with the full and new moons. Some women may ovulate around the full moon. And if conception doesn’t happen, their uterine lining sheds, and they bleed around the new moon. And for others, it may be reversed – they ovulate around the new moon and bleed around the full moon.

For this reason, the menstrual cycle is often referred to as the ‘Moon Cycle’ and the days of bleeding are referred to as ‘Moon Time.’

I am not certain this ‘Moon Cycle’ theory would be validated by science.

However, I personally connect to it and I know a lot of other women do as well.

Ever since I began my ‘Womb Healing’ journey, I have observed some resonance between my menstrual cycles and the cycles of the moon.

I won’t say my cycles are perfectly in sync with the moon every single month. But very often, they are.

I like to believe I am connected to the moon through my cycles for I see the healing value it brings to me.

Now, this brings us another question to ponder.

Is the practice of retreating during menstruation possible in today’s faster-paced world?

It may be possible for some women. But for others, it may be harder.

Here’s why-  

  1. We are disconnected from the body – Being inactive is not always seen as a positive thing in today’s world. With more and more women taking on different roles in the outside world, long days packed with activity have become a normal part of life for many of us. So, any phenomenon that hinders the flow of activity is seen as a nuisance.
  2. Practical Constraints – Even those amongst us who recognise the value of taking time off every month may not always be able to implement it with ease. We may have full-time jobs that support us financially. So, taking days off every month may not be practically possible. Also, with families becoming more nuclear in nature, it may not be feasible for a woman to retreat completely during her moon time. Her presence may be required at least for some part of the day or even for most of the day if she has children that are dependent on her.

Let’s look at some simple ways in which we can address these challenges so we can come into greater harmony with our moon cycles in the modern era that we are a part of.

Connection to Body

Connecting to our body requires us to first drop the notion that inactivity is futile.

We all have Masculine and Feminine energies within us and we tap into each of them at different times. While the Masculine energy represents ‘doing,’ the Feminine represents ‘Being.’ In order to achieve wholeness, we must see and understand that there is value in doing and there is value in being.

As women, being in tune with our bodies and our cycles requires us to tap into our Feminine and to recognise the value in just ‘Being’ at times.

Retreating is a quality of being. Silence is a quality of being.

If we can just ‘be’ when required, we feel more energised when the time arrives for us to ‘do’ again – just like a good night’s sleep recharges us and equips us to take on a new day with tons of energy.

Imagine what would happen if you never allowed yourself to sleep.

Beyond a point, you would become unproductive and not be able to accomplish much.

So also with ‘Being’ and ‘Doing.’

When you learn to ‘Be,’ ironically, you also get to ‘Do’ so much more!

For women who menstruate, this time of the month provides an opportunity to connect to the Being state.

Your body is naturally low on energy when you bleed and calls out for you to take it easy. So, this is a great time to practice the art of ‘Being.’

This is the essence of connecting to your body – honouring the body’s messages and living in accordance with its needs.

Practical Constraints – The Art Of Doing Your Best

If you recognise the value of retreating during your moon time but cannot do it fully because of your life’s circumstances, don’t worry.

The solution is simple – just do your best.

Cannot take an entire day to be by yourself?

Take at least an hour, two hours, or whatever works best for you, depending on your unique life situation.

Slow down wherever you can.

Maybe the laundry can wait a day longer?

Maybe you can skip your morning walk for a couple of days and stay in bed longer?

Maybe you can prepare simple meals instead of the elaborate three-course meals you always cook?

If you have friends or family nearby, maybe you can ask them to watch over the kids for a couple of hours while you rest?

Maybe you can treat yourself to a relaxing massage at the local spa?

There are many ways in which you can just be, for some time of the day, no matter how busy your schedule may be.

A lot can be accomplished in as less as an hour – healing-wise. And you doing your best is sufficient.

Be easy on yourself, stay flexible, and go with the flow.

There are no hard and fast rules here.

Menstruation Is Dirty: Breaking The Myth

Many people have the belief that menstrual blood is dirty and that women are impure when they bleed. This is the reason some societies require women to be isolated during their Moon Time.

I myself grew up in an orthodox family that believed in this practice of isolation.

Ever since I moved out of my ancestral home, I don’t practise isolation during Moon Time.

I have never been able to resonate with the belief that menstrual blood is dirty or that women are impure when they bleed. To be sure, I checked with experts in science and medicine and they confirmed there is nothing dirty or impure about menstrual blood.

While everyone is free to believe as they choose and I respect the choice of anyone who isolates, I personally feel the notion that women must isolate because they are impure when they bleed is not very helpful. While this belief may prove to be harmless for some women, it can bring on feelings of shame and stigma for others.

Womb Healing For Men

This article is dedicated to men and to the energy of the Divine Masculine.

Each of us has the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine energies within us. However, by virtue of being male, many men are greater embodiments of the Divine Masculine, just as many women are greater embodiments of the Divine Feminine.

Steady, strong, logical, practical, action-oriented, energetic – these are some qualities of the Divine Masculine.

  1. While the Divine Feminine dares to weave big dreams, the Divine Masculine takes concrete action to bring those dreams to fruition in the real world.
  2. The magical intuition of the Divine Feminine is balanced by the sound reasoning of the Divine Masculine. Embracing only magic or logic can make one rigid and blind. When both elements come together, life comes into balance.
  3. At the level of human biology, the contribution of the Masculine is integral for new life to spring forth. Unless the egg is fertlised by the sperm, how can a zygote be formed? The zygote has both masculine and feminine components, though it eventually grows into either a male or female foetus.

In today’s world, we are witnessing the rise of the Divine Feminine. And this is much required, considering she didn’t have much scope to blossom for millennia.

However, in this eagerness to welcome the Feminine, we must not ignore the Masculine

Now let’s look at how men in particular can participate in the Womb Healing journey.

It’s simple. If you are a man, contemplate the health of your sacral chakra.  What wounds are you storing in there?

Unexpressed emotions? Dark memories? Heavy burdens? Sexual wounds? Unshed tears?

Make an effort to express, release and lighten any energetic loads you may be holding on to.

Give voice to your buried emotions and gently let them out of your system.

Make an effort to build a sacred relationship with your sexual energy so you may harness it for your highest and greatest good.

Allow yourself to be vulnerable when you work on healing yourself.

A lot of men are afraid that if they work on healing themselves, they may become whiny and overly expressive. And being this way doesn’t feel natural to them.

You are right. This is not natural to many of you. And you don’t have to turn into someone you are not.

Remember – you only have to give yourself permission to be vulnerable when you are working with aspects of you that have been suppressed and need healing. Once you have healed your wounds, you can go back to being your neutral and stoic selves, or whatever comes naturally to you.

You being who you are at your core is what makes you an embodiment of the Divine Masculine and an empowered partner to the Divine Feminine.

Healing Through Reframing: Pregnancy

That early morning when I first saw the positive line on the pregnancy test kit, I was overjoyed.

I was like –

“Oh my God! Is this really true?”

And some months later, when I felt the first little kick, I was again like –

“Oh my God! The baby kicked!”

While a part of me was super happy about my pregnancy, a part of me was uncomfortable too.

I had been conditioned to believe by many women in my family that pregnancy and labour were among the most difficult and unpleasant experiences a woman could have.

It would be a lie to say that pregnancy is not uncomfortable.

However, discomfort is part of the process. It’s nature working its creative magic. Discomfort and pain are part of the game. When perspective shifts, the same discomfort doesn’t bother you much anymore.

When I began this journey of healing my womb, I rewired my negative conditioning, by going back in time and telling my pregnant self-

“I accept the discomfort – the fatigue, the nausea, the aches and pains, the urge to pee, the disturbed sleep that follows and everything else that makes pregnancy what it is. My body is working hard to create a miracle. And I support the process by being completely in tune with my body, resting when I need to, staying active when I can and just surrendering to the flow. I recognise the fact that my womb is partnering with the Universe so new life may spring forth and this is no small feat. I completely respect and honour the process. I see the magic in it and I choose to enjoy it!”

Honouring Your Menarche: The Doorway To Womanhood

Menarche – the first milestone during the transition from girlhood to womanhood, the beginning of the reproductive years in a female.

Go back in time to the day when you had your first period.

How did you feel when you first saw your blood?

Did you have an idea of what was happening? Or were you completely in the dark?

How did your family respond to this milestone in your life?

And most importantly, how did you feel about it?

I grew up in an orthodox family that required women to be isolated during their period and to not come in contact with anything outside of their room. I had noticed my mother remained isolated in her room for three days each month. So, I had a vague idea that women had something to deal with for a few days every month. But what exactly that something was wasn’t very clear to me. And as a child, I didn’t think far ahead to imagine that one day I would experience that something too.

I remember feeling a bit shocked when I had my first period. I was a wee bit terrified too. I remember shedding tears as I realised my life would never be the same again. I possibly imagined I was taken over by an illness or something.

My mother told me this was something that happened to all women and that it was nothing to cry about.

My family was pretty comfortable with my new milestone. I remember my grandmother even did a small religious ritual to welcome it.

I discussed my menarche with my friends in school. I was surprised to know that they had all already gotten their first period months before me. But no one had ever spoken about it! I wondered why none of my friends had talked about this until I asked.

Some of my friends had no celebration to mark this milestone in their lives, while some others had huge celebrations.

Some of my friends laughed at other friends whose families hosted grand celebrations to mark their menarche. I remember that in my ignorance, l had laughed along too.

Most people I knew didn’t believe this was a thing to celebrate. Many believed it was a private affair and not something that required announcement to the world.

My perspective now has shifted of course.

Celebration is not about making an announcement to the world. It is a way to honour the significant moments of life. And I do now believe menarche is one of them.

How much one wants to celebrate is a personal choice.

Some may want to host a gala with family and friends.

Some may want to have a quiet celebration with their immediate family.

Some others like my grandma may prefer to perform a private religious ritual.

Whatever works for each person is perfect.

Honour Your Menarche – Exercise

Place your palms on your womb space and close your eyes.

Go back in time to the day of your menarche.

Recall the sight of your first blood and be with it for a minute or two.

Tell yourself, “Welcome To Womanhood, Beloved Haripriya (use your own name). This moment in time is priceless, for it opens up a whole new connection to a hidden miracle within your body. A miracle that will help you rise to great heights. A miracle that will help you see and experience your highest potential. A miracle that can help you create beauty of varied kinds, including the gift of life. You are carrying a powerhouse within you. And this miraculous powerhouse is called ‘The Womb.’ Celebrate it. Enjoy it. Bless it!”

Do try this exercise no matter how old you may be. Remember we are all on this journey because we have wombs that need healing. Time is no constraint as far as healing is concerned. We have the power to go back and forth in time and rewire our connections to various events in our lives.

A Visit To The Sacred Temple Of The Womb

You are walking through a lush green meadow.

The colours and scents of the flowers leave you mesmerized.

Birds chirp melodiously in unison.

The air feels fresh and pure.

Your heart tells you to stop and smell the flowers.

You take off your shoes, sit down and place your bare feet on the soft grass.

You take a deep breath in and enjoy the numerous sights, sounds and fragrances.

You suddenly feel a gentle tap on your shoulder.

You turn around and see an Angel Of Light standing behind you,

She flashes the sweetest smile at you.

Her smile warms your heart.

The Angel says to you, “ Dear One, You have stopped at a very significant milestone. Everyone who walks through this meadow pays a visit to the ‘Sacred Temple.’ Would you like to see the temple too?”

“Dear Angel, what is within the Sacred Temple?” you ask.

“The Sacred Temple holds within it golden keys to unlock one of the greatest mysteries of the Universe – the Womb. Spending time there rewires your consciousness and opens you up to a greater understanding of the Womb.”

“Wow!” you say, “How do I find my way to the Sacred Temple?”

“Come with me. I am pleased to lead the way,” says the Angel and flashes another warm smile at you.

The Angel lends a hand to help you up, and with her palm in yours, leads you along.

You walk past enormous oak trees and a pristine lake.

After a while, you see a glittering golden structure in the distance.

“Is that the temple?” you ask.

“Yes!” says the Angel, “Come on.”

You arrive at the doorway of the temple and see that it is garlanded with dazzling golden flowers.

The Angel, still holding your hand, leads you in.

You now find yourself in a corridor adorned with more of those pretty golden flowers.

You now reach the end of the corridor and find yourself at another doorway.

You spot a glittering golden key placed in a basket beside the door.

“What a beautiful key!” you say to the Angel.

‘Yes!” says the Angel, ‘Go on. Pick it up.”

You reach for the key and look at the Angel.

“Unlock the door,” she says, smiling.

“Oh my!” you say, feeling butterflies in your tummy.

“Don’t worry. The journey through this doorway will be one you will look back on very fondly,” says the Angel, “Go on. Unlock the door.”

“Thank you, Angel,” you say and open the door with much anticipation.

When you open the door, you are taken aback.

All you are able to see is a dark space.

After all the glitter and golden you got to enjoy until this point, you feel a bit disappointed that all you are able to see now is darkness!

Sensing your disappointment, the Angel says, “Oh, don’t you be fooled! This space is not what it seems to be on the surface – all empty, dark and cold. You are here to explore this space. So, explore it first and draw your conclusions later.”

You smile at the Angel and know you can trust her words.

You take one step in. And then another.

And another…

And another…

And there you are – walking through absolute darkness, in surrender to the journey, open to any and all possibilities.

Welcome to the ‘WOMB!’

You are about to begin a journey of a lifetime.

Womb Surgery: Black, White, Or Grey?

Some months back, a good friend of ours, who is a counselor, said to Suraj, “You know, all these surgeries that you doctors perform on the pregnant womb leave a deep scar not just on the body but also on the mind. I really think they ought not to be done.”

Since she was so blunt, Suraj was also equally blunt and asked, “Well, what do you want us to do then? Just allow pregnant women with life-threatening conditions to bleed to death? It’s a question of saving someone’s life or saving their womb. What would you recommend in that situation?”

Our friend smiled and said, “Yes, of course. I’m sorry. I guess I didn’t look at the situation from that perspective. Just wondering how these women can be helped with the repercussions of what they go through.”

“Well, that’s what people like you and Haripriya are here for. So, go ahead and help them!” he said.

“Right. Of course,” she said and laughed.

Recently, I heard about a patient with a medical condition called ‘Placenta Accreta’ where the placenta grows into the wall of the uterus. Under normal circumstances, the placenta detaches from the uterine wall post childbirth. However, this condition causes the placenta to remain attached. After delivery, this can cause severe blood loss and endanger the mother’s life. Very often, surgical removal of the uterus along with the baby is the medical solution to keep the mother safe.

My heart went out to this patient. I felt it must be such a difficult time for her.

From a psychological standpoint, the question that may arise in such a situation is-

Has this woman lost a significant part of herself- her womb?
Many women would say – ‘Yes.’

Could this woman be emotionally distressed by the loss of her womb?
Possibly. The degree of distress may vary from person to person. But some distress is natural.

The other question that usually troubles many is –

Could the surgery have been avoided?
And very often, the answer to that question is ‘Not if you want to save her life.’

Losing an organ is not easy at all. And it can certainly have a negative impact on the psyche.

But, sometimes, surgery seems to be the safest solution for a person, so life can go on.

Over the centuries, millions of women have risked their lives to give birth. In the current time, with hospitals, cesarean sections, bright lights, and high-tech instruments, the process of childbirth may not have a natural feel to it. But there has never been a safer time to give birth either.

One thing I have learned over the years is this –

Situations aren’t always black and white.
Very often, they are grey.

Is surgery on the womb a negative thing to happen to a person?
The answer can never be a simple yes because there are so many factors to consider.

Do difficult unnatural birthing experiences result in the formation of traumatic memories within mother and baby? I don’t know if conventional science would agree. But, as an energy healer, I do believe they can.

But again, it’s about weighing the trauma experienced against the benefit received from the unnatural birthing experience. If there was benefit to mother or baby, it makes sense to feel grateful for the same, while also acknowledging the pain one may have felt along the way. Healing ourselves from the painful aspect of the experience comes next so we can be free to move on.

To achieve a complete understanding, situations have to be seen from different perspectives. And choices have to be made based on what’s best for a person in a given situation. Most people would probably agree that saving a life comes first.

One thing is for certain – it is possible to heal from even the most distressing of situations, including the loss of the womb.

Grief, guilt, shame, and a myriad of distressing emotions may have to be dealt with along the way. But there is a way to heal.

And as long as there is a way, there is hope.

Womb Healing Checklist: Menstruation

As a woman, you will benefit from practices of ‘Healing The Womb’ if you –

  1. Have taken on the belief that your menstrual cycle is (or was) something to be ashamed of
  2. Felt dread or shame as a child (or adult) at the thought of blood staining your dress and someone noticing it
  3. Felt dread or shame as a child (or adult) when someone discovered a sanitary product in your bag or purse
  4. Have been conditioned to believe that you are impure when you bleed or because you bleed
  5. Feel embarrassed if someone (especially a male) gets to know you are on your period
  6. Believe menstrual cycles are a huge problem women face, possibly even a curse.
  7. Couldn’t care less about the body asking you to slow down during that time of the month and try to be as energetic as always.

This checklist is meant to help you bring awareness to areas you may be feeling stuck in as far as menstruation is concerned.

Don’t worry! You aren’t the only woman who’s going to be ticking off a lot of the points on this checklist.

And it isn’t your fault if you feel a particular way. We are all products of societal, cultural, and religious conditioning. And if you want to break free from this conditioning, you always have a choice to be the change you wish to see.

You can choose to play a part in birthing a new higher consciousness – one in which we aren’t ashamed of our bodies and their natural functions anymore.

And the first step to that is developing awareness of where you are as a woman and of the areas within your consciousness that can be rewired.

Once this awareness begins to set in, no one can stop you from embracing and enjoying your gift of womanhood fully.

Womb Rose Meditation

In this meditation, we will connect to the womb through the energy of the rose.

To me, the rose is symbolic of love, affection, beauty, joy, and abundance.

By using the rose as a bridge, we will enter the portal of the womb, blend the energy of the rose with the energy of the womb and see what this opens up for us.

Process

  1. Sir or lie down in a comfortable position.
  2. Breathe in deeply through your nose and out through your mouth until you feel centered. This should take you a minute or two.
  3. When you feel ready, place your palms over your womb and breathe for a few more seconds.
  4. Visualise or feel an orange rose bud appearing within your womb. If you feel like picking some other colour, feel free to do so.
  5. With your awareness on the rosebud, continue to breathe.
  6. As you breathe, visualise or feel the rosebud blooming into a nice fragrant rose flower.
  7. See or feel the qualities of this rose filling up your womb space.
  8. Continue to breathe until your womb feels full with the energy of the rose.
  9. Now slowly, direct this rose energy blended with the energy of your womb to any or all of your other chakras. Keep breathing as the energy does its work.
  10. Now visualise or feel this womb rose energy moving out into your energy field and forming a cocoon around you. Breathe for a bit more.
  11. Be open to any insights you may receive at this time. If nothing comes into your awareness, that’s perfectly OK too. Just relax and enjoy the experience. Shifts can be very subtle and you don’t necessarily have to feel something all the time.
  12. When the process feels complete, move your body gently and open your eyes slowly.
  13. Express your gratitude to Womb Rose Energy.
